Dave Chappelle Delivers EPIC Season High Ratings With 'SNL' Debut
Dave Chappelle just pulled off a record setting 'SNL' stint, and we're not surprised. Trump, Loren Michaels and everyone else who benefited from Saturday's 'SNL' episode -- namely that epic monologue that likely caused way more people to consider giving Trump a chance -- should clap for that man. Deets inside...
Dave Chappelle is still the man. As Saturday's hilarious host, he raked in the season's highest ratings for "SNL," a whopping 6.2M (million) Live+same day household rating. This is up from last week's 5.8M rating and the Tom Hanks-hosted Oct. 22nd rating of 6.1M.
The comedian also raked in epic ratings in the top demo -- the "young" 18-49 year olds. Around 2.9M people in that demo raced to their tv's to see Chappelle’s TV return. It was the highest 18-49 demo "SNL" rating since Dec. 21, 2013 when co-host Jimmy Fallon and singer Justin Timberlake (who had 3.9M in the demo) were at the helm.
Dave brought back some of his classic characters, Chris Rock, and that unapologetic, risque truth serum we all know and love from "Chappelle Show." And clearly, it worked.
Before signing off on Saturday, he thanks "Saturday Night Live" for helping him to cross something off his bucket list -- hosting the legendary show.
